Ready to swipe up for love? As of Thursday, Tinder users around the world can now use the "Super Like" feature to tell someone they're really into their profile pictures.
Before, people simply swiped right or left on a Tinder profile to signify that they were or were not attracted to the person behind it.
But now online suitors can take the extra step of swiping up to show another level of interest. If you "Super Like" someone, a blue star will appear when they see your profile come up on their app. Each user only gets one per day, unless they are a paying Tinder Plus user, who get five.
When a user sees that star, they know that someone spent a limited resource and at least a few extra seconds thinking about how hot they are, which these days counts as a grand romantic gesture.
"Super Like" was launched in early September in Australia, but finally made its worldwide debut on Thursday.
According to Tinder, people are three times as likely to match with someone who swipes up, and conversations started with a "Super Like" last 70 percent longer than those started with a normal match. The ability to "Super Unlike" shirtless selfies taken next to tigers, however, still doesn't exist.
